Art.

What is Art?

Art is a complex and multifaceted concept that transcends a simple definition, as it encompasses a wide range of human activities and creations. At its core, art is an expression of human thought, emotion, and imagination, manifested through various mediums like painting, sculpture, music, literature, and dance.

Art is not just what you see or hear but is also about the impact it has on the creator and the observer. It’s a reflection of humanity, a source of beauty, and a tool for communication that remains an integral part of our lives and societies.

We explore expression of style, thoughts, feelings, aesthetic, healing, therapy, colour and texture over various techniques and methods in these pages.

Design.

What is design?

Design is a multifaceted discipline that involves the creation of solutions that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. It is a process of envisioning and planning the creation of objects, systems, or interactions that aim to fulfill a particular purpose or address a specific problem. 

Every aspect of our life, has at some point, been designed. The chair you are sitting in was designed and the house that provides the roof over your head was designed., as well as every componenet of the car you drive. There is virtually no aspect of our modern lives that did not pass thorugh the hands of a designer at some stage!
